Cinema projectors, Regal Cinema, Walton, Essex
Cinema projection equipment in the Regal Cinema, Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex. The projector on the left showed only still images from hand made glass slides which were overlaid onto the running film to give urgent messages to the audience such as when the lifeboat was about to be launched. The projector on the right was one of a pair which projected the cine film.
